  1. I was very happy to find this story. I have shared it with members of our Lawson Family Heritage Program,

    http://www.lawson-family-heritage-program.com

    descendants of William Lawson who was shipped to the colonies in 1746 after the Battle of Culloden. We don't know who his parents were and there has been speculation but no proof.

    There was a book written in 1983 by Bill Porter titled "William Lawson, A Scottish Rebel" and has since been updated.

    I am also really happy to have found your blog and have added it to my link section.

    Thanks from Texas, Sherry
